1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
Disappointment, failure, and mistakes serve as amazing teachers and even better motivators. A wise friend once told me that though we may all fall short of the Glory of God, it is the most humbling way to recognize that you can do better. I spent most of my adult life striving for perfection, but I have learned that my children will thrive off of an example of resilience and grace, not perfection.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
Being a Disney-family is the only way that mouse and perfect day could be in the same sentence! Nothing makes me happier than revisiting my first date with my husband, now accompanied by our Irish-Twin boys. We visit Disney so much that we ended up buying property therejust to get a dose of magic whenever we wanted. And of course, were that family in matching t-shirts and ears to boot.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
A father who had lost his newborn son once told me about the gift of ordinary. To some, it isnt enough. But, he helped me realize that some people, especially families of children with life-limiting conditions would wish for nothing more than being ordinary.It is, in fact, a gift. I make a difference by recognizing the gift of ordinary, but choosing to do extraordinary thingsand in turn encouraging others to do the same.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
When I married my husband, my mother passed down a cast-iron skillet to me. While its certainly no secret that Im culinarily-challenged, it serves as a reminder of what women in my family are: strong, dependable, resilient, and timeless.
